Message: Be still and Know

This week's takeaway from church

One of the great spiritual challenges of living in the 21st century is learning to be present. Our minds are pulled in a million directions: the text we need to reply to, the items still on our to-do list, the ideas that adverts put in our heads, all speaking to us at once.
Mary is an example of someone truly in the present moment. While Martha let worries overcome her, Mary was rooted in her moment with Jesus and nothing was going to distract her. What had realized was that God doesn’t live in the past or future, God is here in this present moment.
